Deep tissue massage is a very popular therapy in today’s world. Practised by certified masseurs, deep tissue massage not only helps you in feeling refreshed, but it has a lot of medical benefits too. In this era of growing participation in various kinds of sports, there is an increase in muscle wear and tear. With the increase in demand of sports, torque and force production of muscles needs to increase. Thus, increasing the total work of the muscles and other soft tissues of the body. The muscles need to rest and relax in order to perform better.
Deep tissue sports massage help to relax muscles by reducing the adhesions in between the soft tissues, taking care of trigger points, improving muscle pliability, improving blood flow in and around soft tissues. All this leads to improved muscle relaxation and better muscle flexibility. It’s important that the massage therapist be medically trained to provide deep tissue sports massage therapy. Medical training will not only help the masseurs to identify the problem tissues, but it also helps him/her to understand the intensity of the problem and provide the client with apt treatment.
Deep tissue massage may be painful as the pressure threshold for every individual is different, but the correct pressure is must for a proper release of the soft tissues. There are chances that the client be sore post a proper therapy. In order to take care of this post therapy soreness, it’s always advisable to ask the clients to drink a lot of fluids and take ice-packs for the sore parts. This will help in quicker flushing out of metabolites and thus a quicker recovery.
